The former treasurer of a Hannibal church is being sentenced to one year and one day in prison and ordered to pay restitution for embezzling.

69 year old Donald Ray White was sentenced in a St. Louis Federal Court yesterday (Tuesday).

White was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of two hundred eighty nine thousand, four hundred twelve dollars and twelve cents for embezzling monies from the Anitoch Baptist Church in Hannibal.

According to court records the scheme lasted over two decades, as White independently oversaw the church’s bank account.
